Rooms with a Google Business View
With some rooms overlooking an 18-hole golf course and sand dunes, Beachlands Hotel is just a 300 yard walk from Weston-super-Mare's 3-mile stretch of sandy beach and promenade.
Add to this the indoor pool, sauna, conference rooms, popular locally acclaimed restaurant, and warm welcome from the friendly staff, and you have a fabulous venue for somewhere to stay, hold a meeting, arrange a party, get married, or enjoy an evening out over a meal.
In the family
Having been in their family since 1978, the hotel is now owned by husband-and-wife-team Charles and Beverly Porter, who have run Beachlands together for the past 27 years.
"We love it here," said Charles. "It's such a great location, in a quiet area close to Weston's Quality Coast Award winning beach, but still within easy reach of the town centre, Grand Pier and all the other attractions."
Individual & quirky
Over the years the hotel has seen significant investment in refurbishment and extension work, including the addition of extra bedrooms, an indoor heated swimming pool, sauna and aromatherapy studio, making it currently Weston's highest rated hotel.
"We have deliberately set ourselves apart from some of the standard chains of budget hotels," said Charles, "as these can be rather bland. All our rooms are individually designed in a boutique style, with each having their own individual features. We want guests to be able to find something different, and sometimes quirky, in whichever room they are staying."
Some of the ground floor bedrooms open straight out into the secluded, sunny garden and terrace. "We've made these garden wing rooms really special with a 'seaside chic' theme," said Charles, "with guests enjoying the traditional and fun beach hut feel to them."
Popular with both locals and visitors from all over the world, guests don't stop at just one visit to Beachlands Hotel.
"We welcome many people again and again," said Charles. "It's particularly lovely to see those who enjoyed holidays here when they were young returning many years later with their own children."
The venue has also played host to a few familiar names, including Boy George, John Cleese, and the entire cast of Only Fools & Horses when they stayed to film one of the Christmas specials nearby.
"We see many different people from many different places," said Charles. "That's what makes the hotel business so enjoyable. The wonderful personalities we meet each and every day make it all worthwhile to us."
